Frankie the Walk 'N Roll Dog Skype's with Siren the Fire Safety Dog & Tango

Skyping, and sharing my positive message with classrooms across the US and Canada is one of my favorite things to do-- so imagine how excited I was to team up with Siren the Fire Safety Dog and his brother and talk with Ms. Karen's class in Canada!  We set it up a group Skype call as a Q & A session and the kids had great questions for all us techie dogs.
One of the students, Becca, was the photographer and got some great photos from the point of them seeing all of us on the screen in their classroom.

A special thank you to Becca for your great photography and Ms. Karen for inviting us into her classroom, as well as Siren and Tango's Mom for setting up the group Skype call.
